What is funeral planning and why is it important?
Funeral Planning allows you to identify now, what you would like, how and when. For your loved ones, this will be a gift. Adding funeral details to your will may not be enough as often, a Will is read after a funeral has taken place.
In times of their greatest sadness, your loved ones will be able to focus on their grief instead of having to make difficult and often expensive decisions about your final farewell.
The process of recording your wishes will provide peace of mind to you and your loved that and they will know that they are doing exactly what you would have wanted them to do. Your plan is also flexible as you can make changes whenever you wish.
I don’t know how to talk to my loved ones about my funeral, what can I do?
Talking about your wishes is difficult and not a conversation that people generally have on a daily basis. It is important to share your wishes with your loved ones as it will provide comfort to them when they need it most and save them from the worry that they are making choices that you would not like whilst saving them money and time.
One of the easiest ways of sharing your Wishes is by having a TellThem4Me® membership. You can decide who can view your Wishes (Your Nominees) and you can update your information at any time. Your Membership may even become your conversation starter.
